News and Exhibitions

I am delighted to have been invited and accepted as an Associate member of the Society of Equestrian Artists. I am really looking forward to being part of this inspiring society, benefiting from the experience and wisdom of other members, and exhibiting with them regularly, I hope!

It has been an exciting year so far, starting with the ‘Artists of the Year’ Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in February. I am also developing a new website, and selling more work internationally, so exciting times ahead….

My book for Search Press Publications, ‘Pastels for the Absolute Beginner’, is well underway, and will be published early in 2019. I have an article in the current SAA Paint Magazine, and am writing 2 articles on Street Scenes in Pastels for Leisure Painter Magazine for issues in the Summer.

If you are interested in licensing my work, that is handled by Image Source,  http://www.image-source.co.uk, who will be able to help you.

Nel and I thoroughly enjoyed our New Pastel School course in March, with students travelling from as far afield as Belgium to take part. The UK courses for 2018 are fully booked, but we have waiting lists for them all, and we have a couple of places left for Italy in September. Can’t wait for that!

I have very few courses at my studio this year, due to he need to spend time on my book, and more painting.  If you cannot manage to come on a course take a look at Art Tutor.com.

For our gorgeous Unison Pastel Sets, take a look at www.thenewpastelschool.co.uk .We now have a beautiful landscape set as well.
